Boldon School enjoyed an evening of amazing talent hosted by its very own dynamic duo, Mal and Val. Twelve acts by students ranging from Years 7 to 11 took part. The audience was entertained by musicians, singers, dancers and even a comedian. The winners were: 1st Comedian Zack Howe, 2nd Singer Adele Ivory and 3rd Tap Dancers Leia Surtees and Lucy Herd. The school’s production of the musical ‘Oliver’ will take place on Tuesday, March 28, and Wednesday, March 29 – rehearsals are well under way. Last December the annual Senior Citizens Christmas Party took place and 150 guests were welcomed by the choir from Hedworth Lane Primary School singing carols and Christmas music. Boldon School students played perfect hosts for the evening serving up Christmas dinner followed by entertainment and a game of bingo and a raffle. Guests and staff congratulated all involved for another excellent school event.

Pupils at Boldon School and all pupils, carers and parents of Year 7 were invited to attend the annual carol service held in The Sacred Heart Church in New Road, Boldon Colliery, on the last Friday of term.
